Feeling the beat with Ronin Taiko

Sushi & Stroll at the Morikami

A few years ago the Cornell Cafe at the Morikami Museum & Japanese Garden got a big boost when the Food Network declared it one of the three best museum eateries in the country. So I went, and lemme tell you: The award does not bode well for the quality of museum food generally. Nevertheless, Cornell is a pleasing place -- the food, especially the small sushi selection, is light and vivifying (very important after a two-hour trek around the warm gardens), and you'd have to travel many hundreds of miles to find a more aesthetically pleasing setting than Morikami. On Friday September 12th, for the last time this summer, Morikami will bring in renowned Taiko drum troupe Ronin Taiko to perform in the auditorium from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. while guests are invited to walk the expansive, trans-historic Japanese gardens at their own pace and dine on the special Sushi & Stroll Menu ($14.95, pre fixe). Tix for the taiko are only $2 above ordinary admission, which itself is only $5.
